All That’s Lost Stretched Between Us (Wayhaught Ficlet)
The Homestead is quiet as Nicole moves through the space. She wonders if she always found it this dusty and grey, or if it’s merely a consequence of the current situation. It doesn’t take more than half a second to realize she already knows the answer to that. Her eyes track up the staircase as her senses flood with reminders of the way this place filled her with light and happiness, and something else she can’t bear to settle on, just a short while ago. The dizzying speed at which everything changed is something Nicole attempts to push from her mind as she moves on to the kitchen to see if Wynonna is around, willing herself to ignore the thought of who it is she used to come here looking for.
Nicole saved Calamity on a call one day. She found the small orange kitten behind a dumpster. She was going through a rough time herself, she need Calamity just as much as Calamity needed her. She never loved anything as much until she found Waverly.
